Megan Fox is April O'Neil in Michael Bay's "TMNT."

According to Variety, the Michael Bay produced "TMNT" reboot (which is back on after shutting down production allegedly because of script-suckage) has found it's April O'Neil... and its Megan Fox.

Two things that are odd about this (other than Bay casting the way an Onion parody report would imagine him casting): 1. Fox and Bay were supposed to have had a major falling-out, so this is surprising; and 2. This indicates they've possibly changed their screenplay significantly - in the version I read before this was "delayed," April and Casey Jones (the new versions male lead, a direct expy of Sam Witwicky) was a recent High School graduate. Megan Fox is many things, but passable as a teenager ain't one of them.

Please feel free to continue telling me how absurd it is to pre-judge this movie in the comments, though.
